Publisher's Summary

From the veteran comedian and actor from The Wrestler and Louie comes a hilarious book of travel essays from his time on tour through secondary markets in the US, Canada, and Israel.
Hello. It's Todd Barry. Yes, the massively famous comedian. I have billons of fans all over the world, so I do my fair share of touring. While I love doing shows in the big cities (New York, Chicago, Cleveland), I also enjoy a good secondary market (Rochester, Springfield, Toledo). There's something great about performing in a place where they don't expect to see you. They're appreciative. They say things like "thank you for coming to Hattiesburg" as much as they say "nice show". And almost every town has their version of a hipster coffee shop, so I can get in my comfort zone.
My original plan was to book one secondary market show in all 50 states in about a year, but that idea was funnier than anything in my act. So, instead of all 50 states in a year, my agent booked multiple shows in a lot of states, plus Israel and Canada.
Thank You for Coming to Hattiesburg is part tour diary, part travel guide, and part memoir. (Yes, memoir. Just like the thing presidents and former child stars get to write.) Follow me on my journey of small clubs and the occasional big amphitheater. Watch me make a promoter clean the dressing room toilet in Connecticut, see me stare at beached turtles in Maui, and see how I react when Lars from Metallica shows up to see me at a rec center in Northern California.
I'd love to tell you more, but I need to go book a flight to Evansville, Indiana.

Great read.

Good, quick read. It is a format that I assumed would be somewhat repetitive but I found the opposite to be true. It had a true feel of being "in on it" and behind the scene. Breaking the 4th wall. Most important...it was FUNNY!

5 Star REVIEW you must HEAR this AUDIOBOOK

As the old saying goes:

Its a real "Game-Changer".

This AUDIOBOOK tells you everything you need to know, about EVERYTHING...but mostly about a great comedian touring the land of North America. Hear T. Barry TELL IT LIKE IT IS like no comedian has EVER done before, so SKILLFULLY and ITIMATELY delivered ...This is really a masterclass in something much MORE than an "audiobook" could EVER define.

Not bad not great

saw some outstanding reviews so thought I'd take a punt. I found the humour amusing but subtle and the material a little thin.
